CSS Alumni Color Challenge!!!


Hi everyone!!  Welcome to another great Center Stage Spotlight blog hop!!  If you've arrived from Linda's blog you are on the right track, if not be sure to start at Stamp TV so you don't miss a thing!  Our challenge for today's hop is a color challenge, we are to use the colors for this weeks challenge on Stamp TV, White, Fresh Asperagus and Soft Sand.  Such a gorgeous color combo!!!  I wanted to use my Buds and Vases set, I thought the flowers would be real pretty in the sand color, after coloring them I am very pleased!!  I ran the sand layer through my Cuttlebug and used my Textile embossing folder and cut out with an oval Nestability.  I applied Crysal Effects to the vase and attached with foam tape.
